I believe the answer is:

richard burton

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'film star' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'burr hit conrad in play' is the wordplay.
'in play' is an anagram indicator.
'burr'+'hit'+'conrad'='burrhitconrad'
'burrhitconrad' is an anagram of 'RICHARD BURTON'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for richard burton that I've seen before include "Welsh actor, married twice to Elizabeth Taylor" , "Welsh actor, d. 1984" .)
